After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Real guns, that is. In a move that is sure to make Jack Thompson's brain explode in confusion, the government of Mexico is giving out Xbox 360's to anyone who turns in a handgun.

The program is taking place in some of the more dangerous parts of Mexico City, where you can exchange that real Glock for a virtual one in Grand Theft Auto. Bigger guns, like an AK-47 will get you a computer instead. Endorsed by the Mayor, and helped in part by donations from Microsoft, the exchange program is an effort to cut down on gun violence, and all the weapons taken in will be destroyed.

This is rather ironic since in the northern Mexican city of Juarez, both the mayor and the governor there are currently trying to seize and ban all copies of the Xbox 360 game Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 (G.R.A.W. 2), which takes place in a virtual version of Juarez. They claim the game is demeaning and insulting to their citizens.

Perhaps a program where anyone who turns in copies of the game gets a handgun in exchange? I know where they could get some.
